Guys,

So a lot of us are coming up or have recently passed the 4 year mark. My LR Warranty ends on 4/1. I'm trying to decide if I should purchase an extended warranty. I only have 20k miles and don't see myself driving much more than 5k year -- but do plan on keeping the car for another couple of years. I have had no real issues with the vehicle.

What do you guys think? Are a lot of people purchasing one? If so, do you recommend the LR Extended Warranty - or is these another company that you would recommend? What kind of pricing have you guys seen?

Thanks!

I would skip it. I had one on my 04 Rover and just did not use it. In the end I gave $4800 for a $60 part the one time I used it.

That warranty will cost you $4k - do you really see yourself getting that amount in repairs in 3 years? I don't so I would skip it. You're basically betting the insurance company that a whole bunch of stuff will go wrong. Just do your routine maintenance and you'll be ok. You should set aside a few bucks for incidentals, but you're better off putting some of that 4k away for your own 'warranty' and the rest into the market. Or you could take the whole 4k and lay it on the Colts at -4.5!! At least that way you have a chance to double your money in 3 hours!

Haha, who dat putting their warranty monies against the Saints!!??

In addition to a stickied thread about "What do you guys think of 22's on an RRS", maybe we need one for ext warranty questions??

The insco has done their statistical risk analysis and decided that they are going to profit by billing you $4000 for the product. Since their entire business model hinges on the accuracy of that calculation, it's safe to say that the odds are you will NOT benefit from buying a policy.

Yep - the Saints are the sentimental pick, the Colts are the winning pick. This game won't be a blow out (the Colts will win by 10), but you never, ever bet against Peyton Manning, unless he gives you a reason to (see Brett Favre).

Oh and on topic, even if you claim $3,000 in warranty work, you're still out a $1000 and that leaves the warranty company with a 25% profit margin - pretty **** good.

Well at least you got half of this thread correct. :thumb:
Yeah that game really surprised me...by halftime I was sick of all the ass-kissing the city of New Orleans was receiving. Like this win is going to do anything for that sh1thole. I mean, its been 5 years and its still a disgusting place, anyone think this win will actually do anything for them? The media seems to think so.
